Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge #13 with Blog Candy

Our challenge was to create a mothers day card.  My mom is a gardening expert and has the most beautiful flower beds.  I thought this card was the perfect thing for her.  I used the PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment and the PK-500 Snow Cuties Face Assortment sets.  Be sure to check out the other great projects by my fabulous design team sisters at the PKS Challenge Blog HEREPlay along on the challenge for a chance to win the PK-640 Princess Face Assortment stamp set!

 As a special treat, I am going to offer some blog candy today.  Leave a comment on this post by Sunday at midnight.  On Monday, I will do a random.org drawing and the winner will get a digital copy of my Spring Fling punch art class (details HERE).  Please make sure that you either have an email on your profile or you leave your email with comment so that I can contact you if you win.  Thanks and good luck!


Sorry I didn't have time to do a picture tutorial but I think this one will be easy enough for you all to figure out.  You need the following Stampin' Up! punches:

1-3/4" Scallop Circles punched in Shimmery White and Razzleberry (3 per flower)
1" Circle (for face) in So Saffron
Blossoms Petal (for leaves) in Wild Wasabi (3 large petals per flower)
Word window (cut in half and glued end to end) for stem in Wild Wasabi

Fold the blossom petal in half and sponge the fold to create the vein on the leaf.  Sponge edges of leaves with old olive ink. Sponge edges of So Saffron with mustard ink.  Stamp faces with black staz on. Add whites to eyes with uniball white gel pen, brush on cheeks with stipple brush and regal rose ink.

Punch 3 scallops and clip each scallop towards the center. Layer on top of each other with a dimensional for depth.  Attach the face with a dimensional.  Create 3 leaves and glue together at base.  Glue on stem and glue flower head to stem.

The card base is 7" x 10" Bashful Blue folded in half so that the final card dimension is 5" x 7".


Clouds (shimmery white) and grass (pear pizzazz and wild wasabi) were created using Die-namics by My Favorite Things. Layer clouds using dimensionals.  Attach flowers to card with dimensionals.  Glue grass at bottom of card over flowers.

Kim, I just love this card!!!! I love the smiling faces! Your card came just in time for me. I have three granddaughters coming on vacation tomorrow and I will have them make this card. I'm already casing your smiling sun card. I collect smiling sun stamps and have over 100. I'm a sucker for a smiling face. Thanks for sharing all you do. PK is happy, too, I'm sure. I emailed them and told them it is your fault I need to buy their products. :) I just got the tear bear, kitty and bunny. Judy :) jdiscipio@msn.com

These little flowers are so cute. They remind me of the cartoons I watched when I was a kid. Does anyone remember the cartoons that had a song and you were to "follow the bouncing ball?" I guess I'm dating myself. Thanks for sharing yet another great tutorial Kim.

Kim, I just realized that I forgot to comment, (but hope it isn't midnight where you are yet--It isn't here in AK!) but I think they are so cute. I was wondering if you cut the petals; it looks like they might be.
Thanks for sharing,
